A review of emergency food security assessment practice in Ethiopia

Research reports

This study reviews the practice of Emergency Needs Assessment (ENA) in Ethiopia as it relates to food security. It is meant to inform efforts by the World Food Programme (WFP) to improve ENA practice globally. It considers the question of overall rigour in needs estimation, and explores the ability of assessments to analyse the role of markets, non-food response options, chronic and transitory needs and the impact of food aid.
